Are Cosmetic Injectables Right For Me?

If you are experiencing fine line, wrinkles, creases or loss of volume in the facial area, then you may be a good candidate for Injectables. Also known as dermal fillers and neurotoxins, cosmetic injectables are minimally invasive facial procedures that help to improve the early signs of aging of the face. These treatments also help to restore fullness and volume to the face for a more youthful appearance.

Aging of the face may be the result of genetics, environmental factors, lifestyle habits, weight loss or the natural aging process. There are several dermal fillers to choose from that are used for customized treatments depending on the needs of the individual patient. These nonsurgical facial procedures help to restore and rejuvenate the lips, cheeks, forehead, eyes and lower mouth areas to help improve wrinkles or sagging skin.
Some of the injectable treatments available from Dr. Stacy Peterson, MD include:

  • Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport® — To treat forehead, between eyebrows, crow’s feet
  • Juvaderm®, Restylane® — For lips, cheeks and lower chin
  • Radiesse® –To treat loss of volume and wrinkles of the lower face
  • Bolotero Balance® — For treatment of superficial lines to the entire face

Dermal fillers and neurotoxins are an excellent option for individuals who are not quite ready for a facelift procedure but want to minimize the signs of aging of the face. A dermal filler or neurotoxin treatment only takes a few minutes and most results can be seen immediately. It takes two weeks to see the full benefit of the injectables. Most dermal fillers last 9-12 months or longer while neurotoxins last 3-4 months.

Dysport® - Eyebrow Injectables[+]

What is Dysport?
Dysport is an acetylcholine release inhibitor and a neuromuscular blocking agent indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with procerus and corrugator muscle activity in adult patients less than 65 years of age.

Treat Your Moderate to Severe Frown Lines
Before you can use prescription Dysport® to treat your moderate to severe frown lines, it’s important to understand where frown lines come from and who Dysport is meant for. You can start with the resources in this section, but the only way to know for sure if Dysport is right for you is to consult with your healthcare provider.

Dysport® Treatment Process
A step-by-step guide to Dysport treatment*
When considering any kind of aesthetic treatment, it’s important to understand as much as possible about the procedure, and what you can expect from the results. This useful guide can help you learn more about theDysport treatment process, before you discuss it with your doctor.

It is $9.00 per 3 units of Dysport. Receive $100 off your entire procedure if you choose to add a filler at the time of your Dysport procedure. Schedule your free consultation with Kim today!

In general, here’s what you can expect when receiving Dysport treatments:

  1. The Dysport treatment free consultation
    Discuss your expectations with your doctor and whether you have any health conditions or allergies that could interfere with your treatment. It’s your appointment, so don’t hesitate to ask your doctor questions.
  2. The Dysport treatment
    Effective treatment requires 1 injection into each of 5 points between and over the eyebrows. Although office visit times vary, the procedure generally takes 10 to 20 minutes. Your healthcare professional will determine the exact placement of each injection to get results that are right for you.
  3. After your Dysport treatment
    Ask your doctor about any precautions you should take after treatment. Call your doctor or get medical help right away if you have any problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities.
  4. Follow-up
    To maintain your improvements, you should discuss a treatment schedule with your doctor. As with any botulinum toxin product, you should wait at least 90 days between treatments.

*Although the experience described is typical, the general routine at your doctor’s office may differ, and individual results may vary.

Is there an ideal lip?
Everyone’s facial structure is different—and so is everyone’s ideal lip shape and size. Restylane is helping redefine lip enhancement, with customized treatment that follows well-accepted aesthetic guidelines. Used in this way, Restylane can help you achieve your own “Ideal Lip.”

The Divine Proportion—a vision of beauty
For centuries, artists have used the Divine Proportion to create harmony and balance. For lips, it translates into a guideline that the upper lip should be about 40% of the total height of the lips, and the bottom lip should be about 60%.

Side-to-side symmetry
From one side to the other, the lips should be symmetrical for a pleasing appearance.

Fullness in the center
Lips look most beautiful when the fullness in the center tapers off at the corners.

A well-defined Cupid’s bow
The Cupid’s bow is most attractive when it is well defined, serving as the focal point of the upper lip.

Projection on profile
When viewed from the side, the upper lip should project slightly beyond the lower lip.

Lips-to-eyes relationship
A line drawn upward from the corners of the lips should hit the center of the pupils of the eyes.

Use of Restylane at the site of skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infection should be postponed until healing is complete. In these instances, Restylane use could delay healing or make your skin problems worse. Rarely, the doctor may inject into a blood vessel, which can damage the skin. Although rare, red or swollen small bumps may occur.

First & Only FDA- Approved beauty treatment for lips
Lasts up to 6 moths with a single treatment. 

With Restylane, the first and only dermal filler that’s FDA approved for lip enhancement in patients over age 21, you can have:

  • Beautiful lips
  • An investment in beauty that doesn’t wash off your face
  • Shapely, well-defined lips, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, up to 6 months

Botox - Eyebrow Frown Line Injectables[+]

Millions of women already know Botox Cosmetic – a nonsurgical treatment that helps temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Frown lines can be caused by years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning. As time passes, your skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows remain – even when your muscles aren’t moving. With Botox Cosmetic, you can get real, noticeable results and still look like yourself. So, you can still frown or look surprised, but without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.

Did you know?

  • 1st FDA-approved botulinum toxin to temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people aged 18-65.
  • Since 2002, real, noticeable results that are proven to last up to 4 months. Physician-reported response of 25% (102/403) vs 2% (2/128) for placebo.
  • #1 selling product of its kind in the world.
  • About 11 million procedures have been performed since 2002.
  • Approved in 75 countries for aesthetic use (called VISTABEL outside of the US)
  • BOTOX Cosmetic has a record of experience that your aesthetic provider knows and trusts.
  • Eight out of 10 BOTOX Cosmetic patients (n=312) surveyed are willing to tell friends and family about their treatment.

Why Consider BOTOX Cosmetic
BOTOX Cosmetic contains a purified protein and 2 inactive ingredients. Because the protein is derived from living organisms, BOTOX Cosmetic is considered to be a biologic product. Each of these products is unique, and that’s why there is no such thing as a generic form of BOTOX cosmetic.

Unit dosing and formulations are different between botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Be sure to ask us if BOTOX is right for you.

Quick, minimally invasive procedure.
BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is a quick, 10-minute procedure that requires no downtime or recovery – it’s often called a lunchtime procedure.

Within a few tiny injections, BOTOX Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to the muscles in your forehead – called the corrugator and procerus muscles – reducing their movement. This decreased muscle activity helps lessen the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows for real, noticeable results.

RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler[+]

The best solution for erasing lines and folds is to replace lost structure with immediate volume. RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler works immediately so the results are instant. Once injected, RADIESSE Volumizing Filler adds the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging. What makes RADIESSE truly unique is the ability of the product to act as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow.1 The production of natural collagen continues for several months, which extends beyond the initial effect of RADIESSE Volumizing Filler.1 Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which means more value from each treatment and long-lasting results

Why choose RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler?

  • It is the only wrinkle filler that immediately replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen for long-lasting results1,2,3
  • It is clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients
  • RADIESSE patients are significantly more satisfied than patients treated with other leading wrinkle fillers
  • It is FDA approved to mix with lidocaine, an anesthetic, to significantly reduce injection related pain

XEOMIN® - Eyebrow Frown Line Injectables[+]

XEOMIN® is a prescription medication used in facial aesthetics to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar frown lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) in adults.

XEOMIN® contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.

XEOMIN® is also sometimes referred to as incobotulinumtoxinA.

XEOMIN® in Aesthetics: How Does it Work?
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur due to facial mimics are referred to as dynamic lines. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines.

Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in XEOMIN® – is used in facial aesthetic treatment to treat dynamic lines like glabellar frown lines. It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.

BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler[+]

ntroducing BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler. A dermal filler as unique as you are. Specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you.¹

BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth), yet soft enough to treat more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines (thin lines that appear above the lip line).

BELOTERO BALANCE® Dermal Filler is made of a material called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA naturally exists as a component of your skin. By binding to water, it fills in wrinkles and folds, allowing immediate and smooth correction.

Restylane® Silk[+]

Restylane® Silk is the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age.

Like other areas of the face, the lips and skin surrounding the mouth show signs of aging as an individual gets older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip.

Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these areas. That’s why it’s made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane products.

In a clinical study of patients treated with Restylane Silk or no treatment, clinical investigators reported:

77% of patients treated with Restylane Silk showed at least a one-point improvement in lip fullness (measured on on a 5-point scale) eight weeks after treatment.
59% of patients treated with Restylane Silk maintained lip fullness six months after treatment
Restylane® Silk’s unique particle gel formula, along with an ultrafine needle designed for improved accuracy, helps give you softer, more precise results — just what you need for a natural-looking smile.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC[+]

DEFY GRAVITY. A MORE YOUTHFUL PROFILE STARTS WITH THE APPLES OF YOUR CHEEKS.
As you age, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Your cheeks can lose volume and skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to instantly add volume to your cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over the age of 21. It can provide you contour and a subtle lift for up to two years with optimal treatment.
